Pre teen with SPD/ MRELD
(Poland, Ohio USA)
Hi Im new here, and was really hoping someone here had a child (pre-teen) with SPD and mixed receptive expressive language delays (non pervasive).
I would so love to talk and see what kinds of things you are doing for your pre-teen (hopefully a girl entering into puberty :)) struggling even more with focus issues. Tonight we were going over spelling words before test tomorrow and I literally had to ask her 6 time to spell "fascinated" for me. (this is a word she knows. I catch her jerking her head down like she is in deep deep thought, typical but a little to deep (if you know what I mean)....
She goes to speech and OT to help with SPD and writing. She takes Buspar for Anxiety, I think she developed a tick from 2nd grade when her elementary school principal/teachers literally backed me in a corner to put her on meds. (long long story) :(. However, The Buspar helps but I need something else to help her focus. Thank you all for listening to my story and I will check back as I see ppl are still updating on this forum. I hope I get a response..
Thanks again Traci
